Very often, talented individuals do not get the opportunity to show case and use their talents to better their lives and in a bid to take the short cut, some end up making bad choices and uninformed health decisions like drugs abuse, unplanned pregnancies, unprotected sex to mention but a few.
It is this prevailing situation that prompted TPSC and AUSLEY Uganda to organize the “Talent Heals Event” in order to capture unique skills of the youths and measure their ability to apply skills to real world problems and promoting positive behavioral change among youths and adolescents.
With a view of promoting SRHR services and information, influence positive behavioral change among youths, HIV/AIDs awareness and promote talent among young people to the rather troubled youths through a more youth friendly and entertaining approach, the idea of the “Talent Heals Event” was created.
Emphasis on abstinence outside marriage and fidelity within marriage as promoted through "zero-grazing" in HIV/AIDs campaigns in Uganda helps to promote safer sexual behavior among young people.
The event also is aimed at making that condoms are distributed to the youths and adults at the final events and promoting distribution of right Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights information.
It will be a unique form of BCC campaign in life style and family planning issues.
Since competition is a way of becoming the best one can be in performance and attitude, it was deemed necessary to organize one for youths in the urban-poor communities to find solace in their talent through offering a unique experience where aspiring performers can audition and interview with the best decision-makers in the business.
